She Vlogs...

Yesterday, I did something scary. And doing scary stuff...makes me brave. I can't explain WHY, it just does. I think it's the adrenaline rush or something....

So, because I was feeling so brave, I decided (after much hesitation/anxiety/fear/insecurity) to do a vlog. Actually, I got the inspiration from a couple bloggers I follow. Chandra of MoMoMod did her very first vlog and another blogger Jill of jillggs good life (for less) | good life for less did one as well. So, I thought, why not ME TOO?!

I also really needed to brag a bit...you see, I have lost 25 pounds!!! You can compare my before photo over there <===== That photo was taken on Dec. 4, 2010. I started Weight Watchers on Dec. 7, 2010.


*Disclaimer* I do not consider myself a fashion blogger...at all. I do love fashion, and I love shopping and finding great deals, but I only accidentally look "ok" on occasion.

Why did I choose THIS outfit to vlog? Well, it just kind of happened that way. I recently purchased the cardigan from ModCloth and decided to wear it yesterday. It was one of those days where I just wanted to put on clothes and get out the door. Well, when I went to get tights...these purple tights just jumped out at me. No, really...my tights/sock drawer is so full, that these literally JUMPED out at me. So, I thought...eh, let's see how these work. And well...I think they worked well! I happened to have a matching headband with a bow on it and wonder of all wonders...I had created an "outfit". *cue hallelujah chorus and cherubs circling my head*

Will I do future vlogs? Maybe. It was fun...but very nerve racking...I almost chickened out. Let me know what you think. PS: I know the sound is bleh and the lighting is meh. I will do better next time. If there is a next time. Promise. Cross my heart.

Turn your sound WAY UP!  :)

I think you are hysterical and VERY VERY VERY brave. Brandon has been bugging me for months to do a vlog for my evys tree website to explain how to take care of the ruffles on the hoodies, but I have been avoiding doing it. Must do it soon though. Thanks for giving me a little push. :) xoxo

I must say very interesting :)
Kinda neat, wish you had the kiddos on it with you. You are brave or just plain daring to try something new. Now the problem is you will have to keep this up in some form or another so we can know what is going on in your world:D
